Center for Information Systems
Welcome to the Center for Information Systems at Kent State University
The Center for Information Systems, in the Department of Management & Information Systems of the College of Business Administration at Kent State, promotes cooperation and interchange with regional Information Systems Executives, Kent State Information Systems Faculty, and Kent State Undergraduate and Graduate Information Systems Students.
The CIS corporate members and Kent State members of CIS (faculty, students, and administrators) are dedicated to improving the development, application, and management of information systems through quality undergraduate, masters, and doctoral instruction, internationally recognized research, and service to area businesses and other profit and non-profit organizations.
The Center was established by Dr. Robert D. Smith in 1986 and has a strong focus on curriculum development, especially at the undergraduate level. The 25 year anniversary was celebrated in October 2011. Photos from the 25th Anniversary Celebration
